Few photographers have left such an indelible mark on a community as did Carol W. Martin and Malcolm A. Miller on Greensboro, North Carolina. Both men beginning their careers in the newspaper trade, Martin and Miller later embarked together on a private photography business, Martin's Studio, which endeavored to capture, besides studio portrait shots, public scenes of everyday life around town, various social functions, and the city's major events, such as local celebrations and parades, catastrophic fires, and famous visiting personalities. On display in the Greensboro Historical Museum beginning in January 2000, their extraordinary work serves as a fitting tribute to Greensboro's diverse history and guarantees that these two men will be remembered as the town's most remarkable visual historians of the twentieth century. Divided in the same manner as the exhibit, Martin's and Miller's Greensboro showcases every aspect of the city's life: images of street scenes, vanished sections of town and forgotten buildings, school life, local children, familiar faces, sporting events, businesses, and the community at play. This photographic collection, matched with informative captions, gives insight into the lives of these two photographers and provides an incredible visual history that will allow longtime residents to remember how Greensboro appeared in their own childhoods and allow today's generation a glimpse into the past of their grandparents' and parents' reminiscences and stories.
